Candidate briefing
The Online Case: During our recruiting process you will go through a BCG on-line case. Like case interviews, it is an opportunity to better grasp the kind of issues we address at our clients and test a number of key skills like logic, analysis and business sense. You will find enclosed some sample questions which will allow you to get prepared for that experience and be familiar with the navigation. The sample: You will find enclosed a hard copy sample that consists of 4 questions and should last 8 minutes. The purpose is to help you get prepared for the actual on-line exercise, which lasts 45 minutes and consists of 23 questions. The screen is divided into 2 parts: on the left, you will find the questions and the multiple choice answers on the right, you will find the documents to which you have access during the case To answer the questions: you can click on one or more answers depending on the question. You will be able to move onwards and backwards from question to question and change your prior answers if needed. At the end of the 45' period you will need to quit the case. Evaluation: In calculating your score you get +3 points for every right answer, 0 points for no answer and -1 point for a wrong answer Good luck and have fun!
